Siegwerk will exhibit its customised inkjet ink and service portfolio, including its latest developments and innovations for digital printing.
The company will present various application samples provided by customers and partners at InPrint in Milan, Italy from November 20-22, to demonstrate the wide-ranging possibilities of its inkjet ink solutions for personalised packaging and label applications.
Since its move into inkjet ink a few years ago, Siegwerk is offering analogue inks to printers and inkjet inks to equipment manufacturers both for packaging and label applications. The company always attaches great importance to building long-lasting cooperation with business partners. ‘With the right OEM and industry partners on our side, we are able to jointly shape the future of packaging printing and further drive inkjet printing for labels and packaging applications’, explained Matthieu Carni, director business unit inkjet at Siegwerk, the company’s partnership approach.
With this year’s presence at InPrint 2018, Siegwerk introduces itself as competent and reliable partner for digital printing solutions. ‘InPrint is a small but leading trade show for technical demonstrations of inkjet system developments and new approaches,’ added Carni. It is an ideal touchpoint for the company to share ideas, discuss the newest challenges and ongoing projects with customers and other industry partners as well as position itself as leading printing ink provider also for inkjet solutions.
From the company’s perspective, UV and water-based inkjet are the most promising technologies. UV inkjet fits with narrow web printing on relatively thick material such as labels, direct-to-pack as well as aluminium blisters and offers good coding and marking options for packaging. UV inkjet inks offer clear benefits for narrow web single pass applications as they cure fast and can be quickly processed, are scratch- and abrasion-resistant and moreover create high-gloss prints ideal for label applications. When looking at absorbent materials with a porous surface or very thin non-absorbent polymer films water-based inks are naturally offering great opportunities, making water-based inkjet the most promising inkjet technology for single pass large width printing on flexible packaging, tissue and corrugated applications.
